Call for Submissions
The Negotiation Booth
Call For Submissions, Participants and Collaborators
TSA will present a project at BAAF (Bloor Alternative Art Fair) July 21 and 22 as part of the BIG Festival. "The Negotiation Booth" will be a community intervention project where the public can barter for items and artwork with their own items or suggested services to their community.
TSA needs your input
1.) donate items or small artworks for exchange (please note the condition that your work will NOT be sold but exchanged for items. Artists who donate may choose to have the item that is left at the end of the day from their line of exchange).
2.) volunteer to work the day of the Fair, take part in this fun activity and be an ambassador for TSA
please email email@example.com
Life is all about negotiation. How do we live with others? Every day, in our private and public spaces we have the delight and challenge of sharing and communicating. In a time when our economy is fragile and capitalism reigns, how can we challenge the process of consumerism? How can we promote an environment that provides benefits in a most efficient and accessible format?
The Negotiation booth will start with a number of items. Some random donated items with sentimental or aesthetic value and some artworks. These items can be "purchased" from the audience with any other items they are carrying once a satisfactory negotiation has been agreed upon. This barter process can include anything but money. As items are exchanged during the event each object will be photographed with the item that it is exchanged for, creating a narrative documentary of exchange.
There will also be contracts available at the booth for those who may want to exchange an item for services rendered. An example may be that an individual agrees to purchase a number of flowers and distribute them to random individuals on an agreed upon date or a customer may agree to stand on a corner for an agreed amount of time to help seniors cross the street.
